History[edit]

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WLJC-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 65, in July 2007. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition VHF channel 7.[2] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 65, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.

The station was recently granted a construction permit to increase its wattage from 70 kW to 185kW.[3]
